While the survey to set up a nuclear power plant at Gorakhpur in district Fatehabad has already commenced, a survey of tube well, taps, underground pipelines, trees and orchards belonging to farmers began today.

Five teams have been constituted for survey which included departments like Public Works, agriculture, horticulture and revenue, he said.
